    Well you got to evolve a resupply chain through a logistic systems of echelons and administrative cycles.
    Basically what you have to find out that in what time frame those 22 rounds are likely to finish and in what time frame you would need a resupply may be the moment your 15 round out of 22 are fired...
    Those echelons will fetch up and resupply the tanks...
    the system has to be evolved as per your conditions, battle environment and terrain timings and expected intensity of battle.

    There is no fixed methos for this.

    Welcome to your friends.. the indians...

    In case of AZ-125 autoloaders used in T-72 and T-90 series, after firing 22 rounds from autloader cassettes, crew needs to replenish ammunition from secondary storage inside vehicle hull.

    In case of Leclerc, procedure is similiar. Turret is rotate to 12 o'clock, then gunner opens a internal replenish port in a blast proof bulkhead behind him, and reloads ammunition from ammo drum located under front hull armor to the autoloader cassettes.

    In case of Leopard 2, turret needs to be rotate approx 3 to 5 o'clock, ammunition is stored in simple ammo rack under front hull armor.

    [​IMG]

    In Merkava series, from Mk1 to Mk2 ammunition is stored in a approx 10-5 rounds drum magazine on turret basket floor, rest is in hull rear space.

    [​IMG]

    In M1A1/M1A2 series there are two turret bustle ammo magazines, each isolated from crew by sliding blast doors and with blow off panels. Each holds 17-18 rounds, there is also additional small magazine for 8 rounds between crew compartment and engine, also isolated and with blow off panels.
